I was wondering if dc can write on the exam paper? My dd finds it easier for example in vr to cross out incorrect answers to narrow down the ones left. then marking the answer sheet.

is this allowed?

Yes they can, although some Invigalators say they can't.

Yes they can. You can get KCC to confirm this to you by e-mail. I don't know for the life of me why some invigilators tell children they can't. No matter what I tell my child before an exam they are far more likely to believe the invigilator than me.

Summerglow, will your child be sitting the exam at school or a Saturday test centre? If it's at school maybe you can check with the school beforehand to make sure that they do not tell children they can't write on the test paper?

This is correct. I actually gave my DD a copy of the email in case there was a problem.

That's a good plan - but if you went in to a Saturday test centre with a bit of paper wouldn't that be against the rules in itself and lead to an upsetting start to the exams?

I e-mailed secondary admissions, and the response came from Gabrielle Reay who is responsible for the 11plus process I think.

DS1 informs me that it's actually written on the front of the exam paper that they may do rough workings on the question paper.
